Elmer Search and Find

By David McKee

Search and find with Elmer! A multi-coloured spotting book from our favourite patchwork elephant.

Join Elmer in a search and find adventure! Each page is jam-packed full of things to spot, questions to answer and details to discover, all from Elmer’s rainbow world. Young children can search each busy scene while developing their powers of observation, visual acuity, and their number and language skills.

  • A mix of Elmer scenes and animals and objects cut to white or textured backgrounds gives a varying level of difficulty in spotting games.
  • Elmer's colourful world is perfect for learning visual acutiy at a young age.
  • Packed with detail, so there's excellent re-read value.
